I used 3/4" (which is, of course, about 1" in diameter), and the flow is
fine for pretty much anything. Larger would be nice if you're sandblasting
or something, but 3/4" gives you enough flow for most continuous

Put in as big a pipe as you can afford/manage. Pneumatics aren't the
same as hydraulics, and if you have a long run with too small pipe it
can affect your flow; not how much, but how soon.. Also, the pipe acts
as storage, increasing the apparent size of your tank.
Think 1" or larger.
